—(1) Where criminal proceedings or disciplinary proceedings for the dismissal of an employee or his reduction in rank are being instituted against him, the Staff Disciplinary Committee may, after consulting the Principal or, in his absence, the Vice-Principal, forthwith interdict the employee from the exercise of the powers and functions of his office.
(2) The Staff Disciplinary Committee shall not interdict an employee under paragraph (1) unless it considers that the interests of the Singapore Polytechnic require that the employee should cease to exercise his duties immediately.
(3) An employee who has been interdicted may be allowed to receive such portion of the emoluments of his office for such period during the interdiction as the Staff Disciplinary Committee thinks fit or the Staff Disciplinary Committee may order the withholding of his emoluments.
(4) If the disciplinary proceedings against an employee do not result in the dismissal or other punishment of the employee, he shall be entitled to the full amount of the emoluments which he would have received had he not been interdicted.
(5) If the punishment is other than dismissal, the employee may be refunded such portion of the emoluments withheld as a result of his interdiction as the Staff Disciplinary Committee thinks fit.
